Welcome to the Edmonton Accordion Society 

Next meeting is Sunday, December 9 from 1:00 till 4:00 pm.  

Just a friendly reminder that the next meeting is on Sunday, December 9 at 1:00 pm at the Capilano Community Hall.  This is our potluck Christmas party. Please bring some of your favorite finger food and or baking. The club will purchase a couple of meat and cheese trays. There will not be a charge at the door. Guests are welcome.

And… of course please bring your accordion (or other instruments) and play your favourite Christmas music.

Friends and Neighbours will be playing a few pieces and a couple of accordion students will be playing as well

Share your knowledge:  We continue to look for ideas to keep our meetings interesting and informative.  Amongst members there is a lot of knowledge and expertise.  Maybe a good fingering technique; maybe different ways of playing the bass side; maybe a great song; maybe a great accordion experience; maybe a good way to learn a new song. In short, if you feel you have a subject other members will be interested in please talk to me or any board member to get it on the program.
